Beer in good form on a very hot day. Prompt service and great views of the Thames make this pub very popular and rightly so!

Fish and chips in the oldest pub of London is a good choice. The location is interesting and you have a nice view to the boats sailing along the river Thames. Service was friendly and quick.

The pub is fantastic if you like friends, good food, beers, small scale soldiers (in the order you prefere) and wargaming. Enjoy the atmosphere and the fantastic river view. A perfect pub for pirate scum!
